The American Mountain Co. makes mountain wear. They don’t use a machine to mass produce, but focus on each product one at a time, using their hands to pass the needle through the fabric. The craftsmen behind each needle pass live right here in the USA. And they test their product until they are convinced it will last a lifetime.
The American Mountain Co.’s mountain wear is made in the USA. Founders Chad Caudill and Brad Sawdon saw a need to make outdoor products on our own soil. It’s always a risk to manufacture in the USA because of the steeper prices, but “this country was once one of makers and doers, risk takers and explorers”, and the American Mountain Co. is bringing that same spirit back.
Manufacturing exclusively in the USA isn’t the only reason The American Mountain Co. is proving to be one of the best in the industry. Every thread is hand-stitched by “a craftsman who takes personal pride in every needle pass.” This obviously slows down how quickly they can turn over product, but the end result surpasses the quality put out by the competition. They source their materials from the top fabric companies in the world: Schoeller, Polartec, Pittards, and Primaloft.
The complete control they have over manufacturing gives The American Mountain Co. confidence in placing lifetime guarantees on all of their mountain wear. After the product is hand-crafted it is fervently tested and then signed with their approval. You will never receive a product that isn’t approved by the people who spend so much time and money trying to make it last a lifetime.
Their product line looks clean and vintage while maintaining high functionality and technical ability. It looks as good as it performs in outdoor conditions, which goes back to their high focus on hand-made manufacturing and top of the line fabrics. Most of the outdoor industry has a baggy fit, but The American Mountain Co. has more of a slim fit, with enough room to layer if needed. The names of their products all start with area codes of states with high mountain peaks, like the No. 907 High-Altitude Hardshell that shares Alaska’s area code and No. 307 Mid-Altitude Softshell sharing Wyoming’s area code.
